Subject: Still hate this place...
This wasn't anything particularly special, and cooke is right about dl counts being self-perpetuating.

I got my self bloodied up by those meathead bouncers for taking a picture during froglegs then tossed out the back door. I still had my gear set up, luckily had friends in there that broke it down. Wish they let it run tho because the first set came out great, lol.

Subject: Uh, not an idiot...
The reviewer is totally right about this being an odd choice for "most downloaded" tDB show, but once these things get started, they're self-perpetuating.

The show itself is average to subpar - it's nowhere remotely as good as the following night, but the Solstice -> Confrontation -> Waves is very good and one of the better Waves endings in the past 5+ years. But the first set is a throwaway, and that Basis intro jam is terrible with Magner wasting space on a stagnant sample instead of pushing the jam.

Subject: lot of crowd noise
You can hear a lot of loud WOOOOOOOOOs and people talking loudly. It's a bit distracting.

Subject: WTF
With the last comment why the hell are there so many downloads of this show???? everyone do yourself a favor and go download 11-10-00 at Irving Plaza thank me later
Reviewer: ManOfMulcahey - - February 13, 2008
Subject: a shame indeed
I can actually make out the entire conversation these people are having next to the mic.

The show may have been off the hook, but since I wasn't there I'd rather listen to a different recording where I can hear just the Biscuits and not this guys lame conversation about hunting.

Reviewer: moe.ron773 - - June 30, 2007

Reviewer: DMBOAR5241 - - June 8, 2007
Subject: Good Job Chris
Good job Chris, this tape sounds great. Thanks
Reviewer: jigsaw_earth34 - - June 8, 2007
Subject: Has its moments.
Set I was basically a throwaway. But given the intensity of set II, I can see why they wanted to save their energy. The basis intro is interesting, but a little too heavy on the vocal samples. They sound somewhat awkward. The switch into floodlights was pretty cool and unexpected, though I would've preferred a basis jam. The real mean of this show is the confrontation> waves (><)> basis. Seriously intense stuff. The encore is a bit rushed, but very good nevertheless.
